When UFC 148 arrives it will have been nearly two full years since middleweight champion Anderson Silva narrowly escaped a title-defense against Chael Sonnen with his reign intact. However, based on the emotion involved as well as Sonnen’s uncanny ability to promote, it feels like only yesterday the 35-year old grappler dominated Silva for four rounds until succumbing to a submission in the final frame.
With the hotly anticipated rematch between the two about a month away the UFC has released a preview for the match-up including a quick recap of their 2010 match-up as a voiceover builds the intensity, stating, “In nearly a decade of dominance no man has come close to beating Anderson Silva…except one!”
